Man dog hopefully

Hello to my lovely crafty pals and Thank You for your comments which I enjoyed reading very much. I managed a quick look around blogland but if I missed making comments please blame the goldfish attention span. I am not going to mention the w*****r suffice to say we count ourselves extremely lucky sitting up on the Mendips. Sending hugs to all who need them and taking a few from the hug pot as I lost a dear brother-in-law this week. Hubby is away up to Liverpool today and will remain there helping with all that needs to be done. 
Hopefully this is going to qualify as a man card as that is what is much needed in my box. I think it is a dog but I suspect if it grew whiskers it might be a cat, lol. This is one of my oldest dies and had slipped to the edge of the box unnoticed for some time. 
I also wandered around the online crafty shops this week and found my January and February craft budget skipping out the door so quickly, and that was before the Sue Wilson dies appeared. I expect my wish list to look quite lengthy and might have to introduce a priority column to it, lol. I know that I don't need anything else but it is all so tempting.
I am ignoring my stamps and they are waiting patiently but I honestly need a bit of space for stamping and colouring. Without further ado here goes and please excuse the photo.
Paper  and card - card blank is a 6 inch square 
made from pearly card, 
rusty card is Core'dination,
 Dies used :- Ellison Trophy ,
Dienamics Let's Chat & Lattice Fence (sample) and
wooden Dog with ball.

  4. What a cute card Flora, could do both male or female. Sue Wilson dies are beautiful but I promised myself not to buy any more for a while. Oooooh feel the temptation to buy just one.

  6. Hi Flora,
    super card. I love the design and those fab dies. Just right for a male person.
    I know what you mean about wanting it all, I really have to put blinkers on when viewing Sue's new Dies.
    Been saving for the NEC in March and realized I could not carry a lot around.
    so I spent some of it on things that I wanted, and would not be able to carry.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Hi Flora what a lovely card, sorry to hear about your sad news:( I'm trying not to buy anything until the NEC lol but I'm finding it very hard !!! lots of huggles Sue xx

  9. Good evening Flora, you could cover a lot of bases with that great card, love it.
    Here are a few (((((hugs))))) to keep you going for a wee while. So sorry to hear about your BIL.
    Oh! Sue Wilson has a lot to answer for...........had to get out a "loo roll" for the amount that has been written on my " wish list"
    I like a lot of her Dies and have been tempted a little, just a little for now anyway.
    There are few very similar to SB ones so I will stick with them.
